Hello James,

the Xubuntu documentation subdomain consists of two parts:

1) HTML files directly from the Docbook conversion output of the
documentation [1] which is also shipped offline in each of our images;
these are located at /release/ subdirectories, eg.
2) A custom startpage written in HTML [2], which reuses the styles from
the documentation itself

These are pulled to the production server manually after every
release/EOL date, or when needed.

Hope this helps.
